About

Part nature preserve, part spacious classrooms, we’ve created a school and a vibrant community that understands your child, in all his depth and complexity, and asks him to go beyond what he thinks he’s capable of. At Heathwood, you can expect more for your child’s education.

More than low student-to-teacher ratios (8:1) and expert teachers (67 percent hold advanced degrees), you can expect us to recognize and respect the particular promise of your child – her thinking, her impulses, her strengths, her misgivings, her motivations, and her utmost potential. By knowing the intricacies of his mind, we can reach and teach him in the ways that work best for him – and expect him to accomplish the extraordinary.

Beyond the generic definitions of “academic rigor” and “college prep,” you can expect your child to delve deeper into her learning and emerge a sophisticated thinker, an interesting and self-advocating young adult, and an empathetic and generous person who understands the long view of how her Heathwood education is informing her entire life.

The full Heathwood experience -  the curriculum and academics, the culture and community - gave me a great set of values that inform my life.
